You Wouldn't Want To Live Without Money! (Paperback)
Money is one of the most important inventions in the history of human civilisation, allowing people to exchange goods and services, and amass great wealth and power. This book tells the story of money, from its origins to the rise of the banking system and beyond.
You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without Money! is part of a brand-new science and technology strand within the internationally acclaimed You Wouldn’t Want to Be series. The clear, engaging text and humorous illustrations bring the subject to life and stimulate young readers' curiosity about the world around them.
Specially commissioned cartoon-style illustrations in full colour make these books attractive and accessible even to reluctant readers. Information is conveyed through captions, labels and humorous speech bubbles in addition to the main text.
Illustrated sidebars headed ‘How It Works’, ‘Top Tip’ or ‘You Can Do It’ supply more facts, describe simple, safe experiments, or steps that readers can take to help make the world a better place. Each volume includes a timeline and a list of ‘Did You Know?’ facts.
